Bold colours and vibrant designs combine with confidence in a vibrant look that works everywhere around the home
‘Our Contemporary Luxe look has been coming through for a few seasons,’ says Fionnuala Johnston, Partner & Senior Designer, Home Design Studio. ‘It’s a celebration of colour and materials, yet importantly it still feels very accessible.’ You’ll discover delicious colours – such as mustard, paprika, garnet, agave and peacock – alongside plenty of decadent textures, with velvet top of the list.
‘It’s easy to mix styles and eras with this trend too,’ says Fionnuala, with retro nestled alongside Art Deco shapes for statement pieces in areas such as upholstery. Lighting is another way of bringing the look to life, with statement pedants, floor lamps and table lamps great for adding instant impact.
Key pieces for Fionnuala? ‘The soon-to-launch Jewel pedestal table with its brass base and marble top, the new Pebble chair, and the velvet pouffes are instant favourites,’ she enthuses. Coloured glassware and tableware – designed to be mix-and-matched – are easy wins and will create a statement tablescape. Such a bold colour palette makes it easy to add pieces, building this look – and its impact – up over time.
Watch out for some colourful pieces for outdoor living too…
